South Williamsburg has just welcomed Bia, a restaurant and bar that provides a distinct atmosphere due to its vintage décor. Named after the Vietnamese word for beer, Bia offers a wooden rooftop with picnic tables and lawn chairs, creating a backyard in the suburbs-like sentiment. The venue was last used as an auto repair shop, so some of its detail has remained the same, and we like it. It adds something special when a degree of preservation takes place. It tells a story.
A full menu will be available soon to enjoy for brunch and dinner, but until then, it’s worth stopping by for a taste of one of the dozens of on tap beers, the house wine, or, a specialty cocktail. See you there!
